The CoeGSS internal workshop

On the 24th, at the end of the ICSP conference, the CoeGSS internal workshop is going to be held at IMT.

The workshop is geared towards the project partners. The three pilot studies – Health Habits, working on the diffusion of smoking habits, Green Growth, working on the diffusion of electric mobility, and Global Urbanisation, working on the relationship between transport and real-estate prices) are building synthetic information systems (as we call our ABMs initialised with synthetic populations) for their study cases.
The idea of the workshop is to get a shared understanding in the consortium on rather technical aspects of the problem of generating synthetic populations.

We are very grateful to Shannon Gallagher (Carnegie Mellon University) for accepting our invitation. She is going to introduce the recent proposal of SPEW (Synthetic Population and Ecosystems of the World).
